Furry Friday: Winter Weather and Pets
Maura Davies is the VP of communications for the SPCA of Texas. With winter approaching, temperatures are dropping all over the country, even here in Texas y’all! Some of the coldest weather we’ve seen is already happening and we need to think about our pets and how they handle this weather change. She talks with us about how to handle keeping your pet warm, especially if you have a mainly outdoor animal. We also talk about the ways you can help to keep shelter pets warm by donating! Visit the SPCA to learn more about ways you can help homeless pets in your area.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Dr. Jen Myers is a Doctor of Natural Medicine, Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Certified Genomics/Nutrigenetic Specialist. Dr. Jen also works with one of our sponsors, Sunwarrior, formulating their supplements and protein powders. Today she joins us to explain the endocannabinoid system and how CBD oil works and can benefit us. The endocannabinoid system is something that to this day, isn’t taught in medical school. Even though it is a system we all have in our bodies, just like our central nervous system or respiratory system. And just like all the systems of our bodies, it serves an important and unique purpose.
Dr. Jen tells us how our endocannabinoid system keeps our body in a state of homeostasis. Along with this, she explains why CBD is so beneficial, and what scientifically is going on when we feed our endocannabinoid system with the cannabinoids it needs to function properly. Sunwarrior has released an amazing CBD product, that Dr. Jen herself helped to formulate, and if you use the code “OLR” at checkout you will receive 20% off!
Stay on Track During the Holidays
Cassie Bjork joins us to talk about how we can keep our diet and exercise routines on track during the craziness and carb overload that occurs during the holidays. Less sleep, added stress, excess sugar intake, and less sun exposure (vitamin D) are all reasons we feel run down during the winter months. All of the holidays can start to run together and your routine of getting back on track to health and wellness may get lost along the way.
Cassie Bjork is here to make sure that doesn’t happen. She gives us tips on all the things, including some advice on alcohol choices. Get more info from our girl Cassie, here.
